Prayer for Hobart Baptist Church Family and Beyond

Prayer for the Community:
Please pray for those who are unwell or struggling at the moment.

Pray also for the ongoing Covid vaccination programme around the country and for all the communities that are in lockdown at the moment due to the uncontrolled spread of the delta strain of the virus. I’m sure we all know someone in that situation. It is a testing time for all, pray for increased understanding and awareness of the situation and the needs of others. Pray for hope and the promise of better times. You can read a helpful and balanced article HERE >>>

Prayer for countries in political upheaval:
The list here is too long, but at the top are the terrible situation in Afghanistan, and also Haiti who suffered another earthquake recently (see Tas Baptist Prayer Notes-above).

Please pray for those in Afghanistan and Haiti who fear for their lives, for those who are homeless, suffering from physical injury or have lost love ones, and families that have been torn apart.


Prayer for our Community

Social Justice Focus:  Faith and Climate Change

Creator God, this earth is miraculous and beautiful. Forgive our confusion and inaction as we confront the challenges of climate change.

In the light of your truth, seen so clearly in the life and teaching of Jesus, help us to re-examine ourselves and our lifestyle choices and see clearly the implications of how we live on all that sustains life on this earth.

May we follow your lead in caring for every aspect of this precious world, which you made, and love.

We pray for world leaders to find new, just and radical agreements that will protect our fragile world for future generations.

Throughout history you have moved people to do amazing things for the sake of their neighbours. Inspire us now to work together, as your people, to change priorities in the way we live, so that we build a fair and safe world for all your creation; a world where your will is done as it is in heaven.

Amen.                                                            Adapted from Churches Together in Britain and Ireland
